Last Week’s Presentations Posted

Last week I had to present a tutorial at Percona Live 2013, a presentation at SkySQL’s MySQL & Cloud Database Solution Day and last but not least, a presentation on a Saturday morning at Linuxfest Northwest. It wasn’t easy, but giving the presentations after our announcement early in the week about going open source was very exciting given the warm reception we got from the MySQL Community.

Opening Week for TokuDB

Since we had the pleasure to announce that TokuDB is open source on Monday, it’s been a thrilling ride. With several members of the team out west all week, back on the east coast we’ve been seeing quite a lot of questions, suggestions, and exciting results.

Here are some of the highlights of our first week of open source:

We started hearing back from the community almost immediately after the announcement with discussions in multiple forums. We even reached #2 on Hacker News for a bit.

On Tuesday, a friend of mine in China wrote up …

Open Source TokuDB Resources

Since we announced that TokuDB is now open source, there has been a lot of positive feedback (thanks!) and also some questions about the details. I want to take this opportunity to give a quick high level guide to describe what our repositories on Github are.

Here are the repositories:

  • ft-index. This repository is the “magic”. It contains the Fractal Tree data structures we have been talking about for years. This is also the main piece that was previously closed source. Here are some interesting directories:
    • src: This directory is a layer that implements an API that is similar to the BDB API.
    • locktree: an in-memory data structure that maintains transactions’ row-level locks. …

Getting Interesting

I enjoyed Stewart Smith’s MySQL storage engine blog last week. In it he noted “I cannot emphasize how much more interesting TokuDB would be if it were open source.” Well, with our open source announcement yesterday, hopefully we are getting interesting.

We wanted to thank everyone for the great feedback. Here is a sampling from some of the forums where dialogue is occurring:


BrianAtDTS: “With this update, this puts MySQL in the upper echelon of data storage applications. You don’t have anything like this in any of the other major db’s.”

Announcing TokuDB v7: Open Source and More

Every few months, I get the fun job of announcing what’s new in TokuDB®, but this time is special. With Version 7, TokuDB for MySQL and MariaDB is going open source.

The free Community Edition is fully functional and fully performant. It has all the compression you’ve come to expect from TokuDB. It has hot schema changes: no-down-time column insertion, deletion, renaming, etc., as well as index creation. It has clustering secondary keys. We are also announcing an Enterprise Edition (coming soon) with additional benefits, such as a support package and advanced backup and recovery tools.

Making TokuDB open source is a natural next step for Tokutek’s involvement in the MySQL community. So far, Tokutek has been involved in the community in many ways:

  • We’ve contributed a number of  …
